    He needs to know if it will hold him and an interested party, hence Dynamic Load Testing.

    Can he practice procreating in an Eno on the Dicks sporting good stand.

    Don't you have a couch or a Futon Mikums?

    best stand , industry-made, i've found is the byer vario stand.
    good height, well buit, good distance between connection.

    Yes, but neither of those are hammocks.

    Here are facts; presented as clinically as possible.

    The 'dynamics' of that activity are exactly that, dynamic. The forces are not going in just one direction at any given moment. This requires a very stable hanging structure, lest accidents happen. Personally, I trust lumber over tubular steel. A well built wood stand is just about bomb-proof. Properly tied into the building's structure is even better. Understand that you're a renter, but it may be worth presenting your case and proposed method of hanging to your landlord. Worst he/she can say is "no".

    The box store stands; wont' even try them. One of Ed Speer's style iron-pipe stands has proven it's abilities, so I can't say they won't work. However, a solid wood stand with a wide base gives a more reassuring stability.

    Let's please be extremely careful how we discuss this topic. Remember, it could be your kids reading these posts.

    Yes. For clarification, I am seeking hammock and suspension combinations that have been tested. A home-built, heavy wood stand sounds like the best option next to drilling into the wall from what I am being told. And as long as forces don't exceed 400lb, the ENO DN should be ok.
